April 20, a photo exhibition of the finalists of the III Most Beautiful Country Photo Contest will be held in Moscow Zaryadye park (in Varvarka Street). 70 unique images out of 52,000 submitted to the contest were chosen by the jury in 2017.
The life of a large reserve captured from a bird's eye view, or the microcosm of insects increased by professional optics. Picturesque Russian landscapes and wild animals caught at unique moments. These pictures surprise and make you smile.
In order to take these photos, photographers had to rise up into the air or descend to sea depths, spend hours waiting for animals and birds or just find themselves with a camera at right time in a right place.
Not this is just to show all the beauty, richness and diversity of Russia’s wildlife, but also to draw attention to environmental problems and protection of rare species of animals.
The exhibition will run in the Zaryadye media center through May 20. Tickets are required.
